NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK: Things are really fueling up between one of the most successful pop singers of this generation, Dua Lipa, and "smart" show host Trevor Noah. The two recently went on a date before Noah was invited to be a guest on the London-born singer’s podcast episode ‘At Your Service’, where they exchanged compliments and appreciated each other’s works.

Lipa began their conversation by sharing that she had recently read Noah’s 2016 memoir ‘Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood’, and called it quite impactful. “I found it to be totally moving and occasionally quite funny. It was also the reason I wanted to speak to him for this week’s episode,” she told her listeners and added that she’s eager to know the different "dimensions" of Noah, reported Page Six.

The couple reportedly went on their first date in September, and it was around that time that the episode was recorded but was aired on Friday, October 21. “I see your monologues on TikTok all the time,” Lipa stated, and shared that the two had briefly greeted each other at a few award shows before getting together for the podcast interview.

'The Daily Show' host seconded her, and said, “It really feels like that." The 38-year-old comedian added, “One of the greatest gifts and curses of being successful in the entertainment industry is that you get to meet some of the most interesting people in the world, but then if you’re successful enough, you never get to see each other. … So it’s nice to see you like this, I guess, for a change.”

As per the report, Lipa responded by saying she was really delighted to have a “proper conversation to really get to know each other.” “You are obviously very funny,” the 27-year-old pop star said with a chuckle. “But your humor is very analytical, and I think that’s also a big reason why people gravitate to you,” added the 'New Rules' singer.

As they went deeper into their conversation, Noah recalled, “I remember when you performed … I feel like I saw you … were you in Ukraine maybe?” “Yeah, that’s so funny. I was talking about that today,” Lipa replied.

The duo recollected Lipa's opening performance at the 2018 UEFA Champions League Final in Kiev, and the comedian-host shared, “I remember I was in Ukraine, and then I saw you there, and then I remember you came on to perform, and it was so weird."

“I remember the people were like, ‘Who the hell is that?’ And I was like, ‘It’s Dua Lipa! That’s Dua Lipa!’ And it’s like all these old men who’ve come to watch a football [soccer] game, and they’re just like, ‘Who is this person?’ And now there’s like no one in the world who doesn’t know you,” Noah continued.

In his closing comment, Noah said, “You’ve always been really wonderful and gracious. You’ve always been a really wonderful light, just like in the spaces that everybody’s in. So thank you for taking the time. I appreciate you.” And Lipa gushed, “It’s been a real pleasure talking to you and getting to know you a little bit more beyond the book as well,” she said as they were wrapping up."
